Fun on the harbour

We wanted one last thrilling experience before heading to Melbourne and decided on this with my husband and our four teens. It’s not too expensive like some other things so it was affordable for 6. It was fabulous, we all loved it and laughed and smiled the whole 30 mins. Would highly recommend.
Fabulous ride

Really fun, Will was a great driver and we all loved it. It’s not a dry experience but who cares? Thanks
Good but Needs to Be Kinder to Disabled People

Henry is an ableist d-bag and should be reprimanded. It is insane to me that a grown man doesn't know how to watch his own mouth. I heard him say, "Whose idea was this?" when I was trying to get on the boat. People say rude things to me all the time because I am disabled. But for him to be in a professional position and say it when I am right there, is truly a different kind of absolutely rude. I am physically disabled, but my ears work just fine. What he did was really unprofessional.

Disabled people shouldn't be discouraged from doing things. It is hard enough having to live in a world designed for abled-bodied people. There needs to be more patience and compassion for those with disabilities. I hope that he will improve his behavior in the future, because he needs to stop.

Other than that I had fun. I am giving 5 stars just because I don't want to mess up the ratings for the other people who work here.
Great 30 minutes. Had a...

Great 30 minutes. Had a smile all the time. Great way to see the harbour. My wife was particularly happy and loved the boat burn outs.

My son and I had an incredible time on the jet boat. Cruising, spinning, and splashing our way across Sydney Harbor. Highly recommend.
Great trip, good value

We’ve been on a few of these in various locations and this was up with the best. Anthony, the guy in charge of the boat, was perfect for the job, full of enthusiasm and interaction. Great trip which it seemed everybody on board enjoyed.
Unique way to see Sydney

This is such a unique way of seeing Sydney. It was a lot of fun. Our guide/driver, Antony, was really good. He pointed out a few landmarks around the harbour and made sure everyone was doing alright and having a good time from start to finish. Bonus: he had excellent music taste
I absolutely had the best time ever, I highly recommend everyone doing the thunder jet boat. Anthony was bloody amazing.

My favourite part of the jet boat was when the driver did the 360 turn. For future travellers i recommend wearing sunglasses so the salt water doesn’t go in your eyes. I’ll definitely be doing this again!!!
Fantastic Ride

Had a great ride with family as we caught up on boxing day. The harbour was superb and had a great view of all and enjoyed a thrill ride at the same time.
The staff were all friendly and accommodating and the driver was excellent.
Great Experience

Best fun on the water.

Thoroughly enjoyed this with the family. The experience from start to finish was professional & safe. Our driver Will was exceptional & communicated well so you knew what to expect during the ride. Loved the additional info about different parts of the harbour with the best views of opera house, bridge & Sydney from the water. Would definitely do this again.
A great experience

Had a wonderful ride with Will as our driver. It was all well organised and we were all prepared at the pending spins. Would love to do this again with Thunder boats.

What a way to see Sydney Harbour!
danaJ6139WX, 08-01-2023
A brilliant way to see Sydney Harbour. Staff were friendly and welcoming and the driver (forget his name) was absolutely awesome. He made sure everyone was comfortable and ready to go, hyped them up and delivered a really enjoyable ride, mixing showing us the sights with getting us absolutely soaked. Would recommend!
Absolutely amazing thanks to Issac and the team
Dani H, 07-01-2023
